Time and time again conservatives have heard the charge by liberals that the GOP isn’t diverse enough, that the vast majority of office holders and candidates are older white men. The insinuation, of course, is that the Republican Party is somehow racist or exclusionary to minorities.

Well, that couldn’t be farther from the truth, as is demonstrated by the six black women who are running for Congress in the November midterm elections.

Here’s a brief introduction to these extraordinary ladies.

Both of Aja’s grandparents served in the U.S. Military. Her grandfather was a veteran of WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. Her great uncle was a Tuskegee Airman pilot. In 2002, Smith joined the United States Air Force Reserve. In 2007, she was deployed to Qatar and stationed at Al-Udeid Air Force Base during Operation Enduring Freedom. If elected, Smith would become the first African-American female Republican to serve in Congress from California.

Virginia Fuller, a registered nurse by trade immigrated to the United States in 1976, gaining her citizenship in 2000. For nearly 38 years she’s lived in California, but now a happily transplanted Floridian for the last two years, according to Fuller. In 1989, she established and operated two pediatric care facilities. One was a 24-hour Emergency Shelter Home for abused and neglected children located in Oakland, Calif. The other was an Extended Nursing Care Facility in Richmond, Calif. licensed by the State Health Department.

Liz Matory — Running for Maryland’s 2nd Congressional District

Liz Matory is a small business owner and author of ‘Born Again Republican,’ the book about what she learned after leaving the Democrat Party, connecting with voters as an independent and discovering that she is a conservative. Matory has said that she is on a mission to encourage more people to learn the truth about the democrat’s agenda to diminish the Republic and degrade the power of the voters through partisan gerrymandering. After running for Congress in 2016, she became very active in party building efforts across the state with the Maryland Federation of Republican Women and the Maryland Republican Party.

Jineea Butler — Running for New York’s 13th Congressional District

Jineea Butler, from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is a social worker in her day job and who has a true heart for her community. Butler started a company called the Social Services of Hip Hop, a music program she introduced to New York City schools. She also created the Hip Hop Union nine years ago, claiming it has had both a nation and international impact.

Charlotte Bergmann — Running for Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District

Bermann was born and raised in the historic city of Memphis, Tennessee and describes herself as a devout follower of Jesus Christ. She formerly worked for FedEx, where she retired in 2000. During her time with the company she worked as a Technology Project Manager. She now owns and operates a small family business. One of the things she plans on doing if she gets sent to Congress is to push legislation that will insure healthcare is affordable and is the responsibility of patients and their doctors without intervention from the government. She also stated she is a proud supporter of President Donald Trump.

The next time the left tries to say the GOP isn’t diverse, pull this out and show them that’s simply not the truth.

Supreme Court Says No To Fast-Tracking Obamacare Decision; Pushes It Back Until Election Is Over

Published

on

The Supreme Court has decided they will not take up a challenge to Obamacare, opting instead to wait until after the 2020 presidential election is over before making any kind of decision on the issue. Part of the reason for the delay is that it removes pressure from Republicans and the current administration to cook up a backup proposal for the law. Here’s more from the Washington Examiner: The timeline removes the immediate threat that the whole law will be struck down, including its popular rules prohibiting insurers from turning away the sick, allowing President Trump to focus his attacks on Democratic proposals such as “Medicare for all.” It will also make it more difficult for Democrats to run on protecting Obamacare, a political strategy that has proved advantageous to them in the Trump era. The case in question, Texas v. Azar, is the result of a lawsuit by Republican state officials who said that Obamacare must be struck down on the grounds that it lost a critical component when the 2017 GOP tax overhaul zeroed out its fine on the uninsured. Republicans, who had the support of the Trump administration, said the fine had been central to Obamacare and that the rest of its provisions would not work and should not stand without it. Judge Reed O’Connor, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, agreed with the GOP states, but the case was appealed to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. On Dec. 18, the appellate judges ruled 2-1 that the health insurance mandate was unconstitutional but that the rest of the law needed further analysis by the lower courts to see whether some parts could be separated out and others could not. Liberal states that are defending Obamacare had urged the Supreme Court to take up the…

Hollywood Actor Michael Douglas Announces Endorsement Of Michael Bloomberg

Published

Hollywood has become a central hub of left-wing Democratic Party activity, so it’s not exactly a shock when a major actor or celebrity comes out and endorses a Democratic candidate for president. In fact, it would be shocking to see the opposite occur, but honestly, given the obvious bias in the industry, there’s very little worry that would ever happen. Legendary actor Michael Douglas, most recently known for the role of Hank Pym in Marvel’s Ant-Man film series, has announced he’s backing former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for president. Douglas made the announcement in a video released on Tuesday. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “I feel so blessed that in this particularly difficult time that we have one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections,” Douglas told People magazine, adding that he “hasn’t been this excited” about a presidential candidate since John F. Kennedy. The actor said he saw the addition of Bloomberg, 77, to the 2020 Democratic presidential primary as a “rare opportunity to coalesce and bring us back together, get rid of all this horrid, negative scare tactics that are going on, and the fact that he’s succeeded to the degree that he has is phenomenal.” At the conclusion of his endorsement, Douglas, who starred in films such as The American President, Fatal Attraction, and Ant-Man, called Bloomberg “a president America needs.” Bloomberg hasn’t been shy about making it clear he supports the removal of Donald Trump as the president under the impeachment charges brought against him by the House of Representatives. He clarified that he believes impeachment is very divisive, but “there’s just so much evidence that [Trump] acted inappropriately.” Democrats keep talking about all of the evidence that supports impeachment, but the question remains. Where’s it at?
